Westchester resident and Good Morning America weekend co-anchor Kate Snow has been traveling with former President Bill Clinton throughout Africa for a series of reports on various ABC News shows. Yesterday she filed a story for GMA.
Tonight, she’ll conclude her reporting on Nightline with what TV Newser calls “an in-depth story.”
Snow has been covering the Chappaqua resident’s various projects throughout the continent. Yesterday, Snow described Clinton as something of a rock star.
<blockquote><div>In Africa, they seem to be on a first-name basis with the former President, shouting Bill, Bill. </div></blockquote>
Some conservative blogs have criticized her story for being overly deferential to the possible future first gentleman.Ã‚Â Tune in tonight and judge for yourself.

According to The New York Observer, at least, she’s in the running to replace the 61-year-old news legend if and when she leaves the show (reportedly, her contract’s up this spring). Snow hosts the weekend edition of Good Morning America. However, according to the paper, the networkÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s first choice is NBC News ace Campbell Brown, who was seen as being passed over in favor of Meredith Vieira for Katie CouricÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Today Show chair.
If Snow were to land the gig it would be a Westchester-dominated morning news war with Vieira at the Today Show and Rene Syler at CBSÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s The Early Show and the Saw MillÃ‚Â suddenly a good deal more crowed with limos at 5:00 in the morning. We say, let the battle begin!
Whether it’s Esquire’s six-month slow reveal of the “Sexiest Woman Alive” or the $2 million worldwide “Alchemist Dar” treasure hunt (created by Michael Stadther of Pound Ridge), I’m always a sucker for grand, global, multimedia contests. Which explains why the USA Today/ABC “Seven New Wonders of the World” event captured my imagination Ã¢â‚¬â€ and why I’m so jealous of Kate Snow, the Good Morning America weekend anchor, Rye resident, and only person who actually knows what all of the new Wonders are.
